Her roles in ‘The Divergent’ film series as well as the post-apocalyptic action film ‘Mad Max’ brought the young actress global acclaim.
Family and ChildhoodZoë Isabella Kravitz was born in 1988 in Los Angeles, to musician Lenny Kravitz, and his wife Lisa Bonet, an American actress and model. Zoë is proud to be a part of an artistic family. Kravitz’s maternal grandfather, Allen Bonet, was an opera singer. Her paternal grandmother, Roxy Roker, was a famous black actress, while her grandfather, Sy Kravitz (who was of Ukrainian-Jewish ancestry) produced science films.
Early career pathKravitz graduated from high school in Miami and continued her studies at the State University of New York at Purchase. Although, she left college after a year to devote herself to music and cinema.
Zoë also made her name in the modeling business. Unfortunately, her first professional photos were deemed useless by the country’s top fashion magazines, as the 17-years-old was depicted consuming alcohol and cigarettes. Following this setback, Zoë took on a more sophisticated approach to her photoshoots — and so, Kravitz’s photos have finally appeared in popular magazines like ‘Elle’, ‘Teen Vogue’, and ‘Vanity Fair’.
